I took a beat down,but I did get some head camera footage...

The last couple days...I have been using a head camera set up on Great Falls of the potomac. Actually on the fish ladder section of the falls. I did a bunch of runs with following some friends of mine and got some footage that is kind unique. If you want to check out the edited segment, then go to:
LOCAL PADDLER.com
and then mouse over the hostess in the bottom left part of the screen and click on the first thumbnail. Enjoy.


On the last slide of the fish ladder I got stuck in the hole at the bottom and had a freestyle ride to remember. I only got worked for a few seconcds but it was long enought to smash my boat on the bottom in mid trashing and dent it in about 5 places.

I am just glad that when I was filming behind my bros going down the slides into the big holes they didn't get caught in the hole because I would have had a hard time missing them if they did. That would have been a double beatdown.
